Blaze Improved Crimson Climbing Rose
Grows quickly and blooms its head off, most heavily in early summer and early fall!
The blooms are 2 to 3 inches wide, suffused with rich crimson-scarlet tones, and borne in big clusters against deep green foliage. This is a Rose that really shows off against a white wall or arbor, but also looks good wending its way along a wooden fence, hiding a chain-link fence effectively, or arching out from a trellis. Grows 10-15 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide, spending all its resources making more flowers!
The bloom season is Blaze Improved's most impressive feature, but this shrub is also a fine grower, easy to care for and exceptionally vigorous. I recommend it for new gardeners looking to have a successful "first Rose" growing experience, as well as to seasoned gardeners who appreciate the very long season of color this climber offers.
Give Blaze Improved plenty of sunshine, water, and food for even heavier bloom seasons! Zones 5-9.

What to Expect
Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren’t dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into containers and make an attractive gift.
Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like.
